Checklist Comments

Early in the morning on 30th May 2019, a birding trip was undertaken to different spots along Ghat Road connecting Pothundy to Nelliyampathy. The birding party reached the first spot by 6.20 AM.
Even though the weather was overcast early in the morning, as the day progressed it became very hot and sunny.
On this spot (Thanpuran Kunnu) some of the trees on the roadside were heavy with berries. It was observed that barbets belonging to different species were gorging on the fruits. The laughing thrushes were recorded in the bamboo thickets underneath these trees.
The birding party consisted of 2 persons: Mr. Vivek Sudhakaran and Mr. Venugopalan. R.
